On Sunday, August 17, I will be participating in the Timberman Triathlon in New Hampshire. I will be doing the sprint distance and I'm already very nervous! I know I'll be fine on the bike (the PMC two-day ride is two weeks before) and the run, but I'm sure the swimming will be the hardest part for me. In order to better prepare for the swim, I have signed up for swim classes at my gym. I already feel comfortable swimming freestyle and doing laps, but I really want to perfect my form so that I am more efficient and maybe a even a bit faster. And let's face it - I don't want to drown!
Last night was my first class and I am feeling pretty good about my ability. It didn't hurt that the instructor said I am a strong swimmer and that he was surprised I'd never taken lessons before.
In case you're interested, I plan to post weekly workout recaps. Hopefully, this will help me better plan my workouts, as well as keep me accountable.
Hope you have a great Thursday!
